government and the previous one. the latest figures show people -- at 600 pounds per pupil per year less than english average. the worst in the entire country. does the prime minister agree that this is simply unfair? will you support our school campaign and pledged to end this discrepancy in this parliament? >> prime minister spent i will look carefully at what my honorable friend said. what -- we have protected the schools budget so that the per pupil funding is the same throughout this parliament. so head teachers can plan on the basis, and by encouraging academy schools and preschools we are making sure that schools get more of the education money going directly to them. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the isf describes the chance was benefits cut is giving with one hand and taking away with many others. does the prime minister think that the sister on hard-working families were at the same time he is giving to millionaires with both hands? >> i don't agree with the honorable lady but that's what the isf saves it as i quoted the lastly, the isf point out that actually the highest increase in t

of the equality of human beings, the value of education and power of dissent even with one's own government and the right of the people to change their government without ballots-- with ballots, rather instead of bullets and bombs. and the president could do the country and in fact the world a favor by withdrawing the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. a man who is so utterly and ignorant of the real enemy that we face that he believes that iran can be trusted and israel can't. he'd be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than the placement of our military assets to defend against threats. i hope you'll call and e-mail your senator, urge him or her to use a little common sense. and while acknowledging that the president has the privilege to name his team. he does not have the right to put people on his team, who betrayed the trust of the american people and our friends in the real world. that's my view. [applause]. well, most of the over 4,000 persons who are aboard the carnival triumph cruise ship are on the way home or on their way home. and it's going to be a lo

a smarter government, not a smaller government. it was the economy that dominated the speech including a call to elevate the middle class. >> it is our generation's task to reignite the true engine of america's economic growth. a rising, thriving middle class and that's why we need to build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class for all those willing to climb them. a growing economy that greats middle class jobs, that must be the north star that guides our efforts. [ applause ] >> the president called on congress to raise the minimum wage and put a billion dollars into manufacturing institutes. he's announced he's creating a bipartisan commission to look into voting problems. and he will bring 34,000 troops in afghanistan home as well as press for universal preschool. he did not mention gun control until the very emotional end when he demanded a vote on gun control. >> gabrielle giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped

info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them?

and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva

government and focused largely on the struggles of the middle class. the hour-long speech hit on themes such as raising the minimum wage and infrastructure. in the eyes of the president, the nation will have a hard time seeing any progress unless the partisan politics of washington give way to cooperation and a little bit of common sense. >> let's set party interests aside and replace a budget that replaces reckless cuts with smart savings and wise investments in our future and let's do it without the brinksmanship that stresses consumers an scares off investors. the greatest nation on earth -- the greatest nation on earth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crisis to the next. we can't do it. let's agree right here, right now to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always uphold the full faith and credit of the united states of america. >> also on his domestic agenda, immigration reform. an issue that actually has potential for support from both sides of the aisle. >> our economy is stronger when we harness the talents and in
